Cochran, Eddie - Rock & Roll Blues Lyrics




Oh, dancin' all night, so I have my play
But how can I work when I sleep all day
I got those rock 'n' roll blues, those rock 'n' roll blues

I dig way down deep in my ol' blue jeans
To put my last dime in that record machine
I got those rock 'n' roll blues, those rock 'n' roll blues

I have the blues to fight
And to make things worse I fell in love last night
The little girl I found
Said to stop my hoppin' and settle down

Oh why can't there be two of poor ol' me
One on the dancefloor and one hangin' 'round the door
I got those rock 'n' roll blues, those rock 'n' roll blues

I have the blues to fight
And to make things worse I fell in love last night
The little girl I found
Said to stop my hoppin' and settle down

Oh why can't there be two of poor ol' me
One on the dancefloor and one hangin' 'round the door
I got those rock 'n' roll blues, those rock 'n' roll blues

  10. HarryWebb46

    Thanks Ed! Thanks for coming to England and moulding the Beatles and the Stones and various others. You personified America in the 1950's , brash, bold, and a totally positive influence on UK rock 'n' roll scene!

  11. HarryWebb46

    My earliest memories listening to this track..

  12. Tony Thompson

    Cor , what a singer Amazing

  13. roland johansson

    This one have such F*****G 50s feeling so I don't know what to do. Yes, I want to get back to the 50s, and esp here, where Eddie recorded this song, prob at Gold Star Studios.

  14. Stylianos Orphanoudakes

    Jesus... another brilliant song that didn't receive the recognition that it deserves. I hope we can do something for that 50 years later :)

  15. Blackmist187

    My roommate is always playing this song!

    I found myself always humming it.

    I grew fond of this song.

    He can never know 

    Buddy Holly

  21. Diogenes1360

    Wow! Smooth cool Eddie!

  22. Jim Johnston

    Awesome!

  23. 1957seville

    I have this ep from 1958 in swedish release. One of EDDIES best songs.

  24. Gretschzilla

    FYI, the sheetmusic/lyrics for this song were found in Eddie's guitar case after the car crash. I believe this song was meant for Ricky Nelson but he turned it down.

  25. sparkescadman

    Eddie did so many types of songs, and all very well.
    The interviews of him show he was a down to earth guy.
    In the words of Shelby Singleton , that this excellence could be on a major label could "never happen in today's world". Thank God it did in the 50's!

  26. Marc M

    hard to stand still with this song,pure rock 'n roll

  27. rocker56fr

    Eddie Cochran,sa musique à tout jamais dans mon coeur

  28. Yesenia Martinez

  30. whitefalcon64

    A very unknown Eddie Cochran song, even it was the 1st one I heard from him. Thanks for post it, I love it. Greetings from Spain.

    U.S. SAM

    only unknown by those who don't know Eddie :)

  31. Peter Whitehall

    Got this track on an "EP". Nice song.

  32. bellgardens53

    This one have such a wonderful '50s Rockn'Roll feeling.

  33. Rockin'D Rockabilly

    HE'S THE BEST. PERIOD.

  34. barrygioportmorien1

    One of his best.

  35. tony ryan

    very well said about eddies voice

  36. tony ryan

    great beat and his voice it great.thanks eddie

  37. L0ngLiveRnR

    Well, actually it is the Rock n Roll Blues that he is singing so, I really think the melhanconic voice fits it just perfectly. By the way, the lyrics make you understand that is eddie in person telling he's problems so, an happy, sparkling tune wouldn't fit at all with a bluesy song :)
    Long Live Eddie Cochran

  38. L0ngLiveRnR

    Love this song!
